FEDERATION OF ASIAN SOCIETIES FOR MOLECULAR IMAGING (FASMI)
Uniting imaging in Asia-Pacific
FASMI AT A GLANCE
Molecular Imaging is broadly defined as the characterization and measurement of biological processes in living animals/humans at the cellular and molecular level by means of non-invasive (or minimally invasive) imaging. These advancements will be used to enhance our knowledge of normal and pathogenic processes, to accelerate drug discovery, to establish new methods of assessing outcome, and to ultimately improve early disease detection, prevention and therapy.
To promote molecular imaging in Asian countries and throughout the world
To facilitate communications between researchers and clinicians working in the field of molecular imaging and related disciplines
To stimulate and mediate collaborations between molecular imaging researchers and clinicians in Asian countries and throughout the world
To the network infrastructure for multi-disciplinary education and collaborative research in molecular imaging
Founded 1 Sep 2006, Hawaii (USA).
Jointly suggested by the Presidents of
the National Societies for Molecular Imaging of Japan, Korea and Taiwan during the inaugural meeting of the Japanese Society for Molecular Imaging,
23-24 May 2006, Kyoto (Japan).
Australia officially joined FASMI in 2015
